  EASTBIO: Functional genomics for understanding behaviour and learning in a single-celled brainless blob, the slime mould Physarum polycephalum
  Dr M Wenzel, Prof D Lusseau, Prof P Schaap
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Marius Wenzel (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/people/marius.wenzel. Professor David Lusseau (University of Aberdeen).
  Reprogramming stomatal behaviour to reduce water use in crops
  Prof L Sweetlove, Prof R G Ratcliffe
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future food security will depend on developing crop plants that are as efficient as possible in their utilisation of finite resources such as water.
  Behavioural, tomographic and biomechanical analysis of socially induced changes in body and brain structure in desert locusts
  Dr S Ott, Dr T Matheson, Prof J Pan
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All animals can tailor their phenotype to the environmental conditions they experience during their lifetime. Such phenotypic plasticity typically entails concerted changes in morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Cerebellar control of aggression
  Dr W NORTON, Dr J McDearmid
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our laboratory investigates the genes and neural circuits that control aggression, an adaptive behaviour that animals use to establish social hierarchies and fight for resources such as food or territory.
  Can transposons promote plant genome evolution?
  Dr M Catoni
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution is the process that allow organisms to adapt to new environments, and it is based on changes of heritable traits and their selection over successive generations.
  Assessing the effects of microplastics on marine benthic communities
  Dr D Mayor, Dr J Godbold, Dr B Thornton, Dr A Horton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Continental shelf sediments are biogeochemical hotspots. Interactions between benthic invertebrates and bacteria drive the remineralization of organic matter, returning inorganic nutrients to the overlying waters and stimulating primary production.
  QUADRAT DTP: Do plant communities manipulate soil for drought resistance?
  Prof P Hallett, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants have differing abilities to engineer soil to make them more productive and stable under stress, but the mechanisms that underpin processes remain poorly understood, despite their significance to soil sustainability, food security and climate change.
  Using zebrafish to model Facioscapulohumeral muscle dystrophy and screen for drugs to enhance muscle stem cell health
  Dr R Knight, Dr P Zammit
Application Deadline: 26 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Facioscapulohumeral dystrophy (FSHD) is the 3rd most common muscle dystrophy leading to progressive muscle weakness of facial, shoulder and limb muscles and so impairing quality of life.
  EMBL Australia Partnership PhD Program

Funding Type

PhD Type

Undertake interdisciplinary, postgraduate research for a PhD degree at Australia's top life science laboratories. Successful students will receive generous scholarships and travel grants while undertaking their PhD at an EMBL Australia laboratory in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra or Adelaide.
  [EPSRC - iCASE] Microbe – radionuclide interactions in legacy nuclear waste systems
  Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris, Prof S Shaw, Dr L Natrajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
  Developing GWAS approaches to decipher the drivers of Bordetella pertussis adaptation during re-emergence
  Dr A Preston
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome rearrangement, the reordering of genes along the chromosome, is widespread among bacteria. It is thought to affect bacterial phenotype (behaviour) and contribute to their evolution and adaptation.
  How does the host influence the pathogen?
  Dr R Drummond, Dr E Ballou
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to understand how the microenvironment of different organs affects microbial virulence and disease pathogenesis.
  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  Understanding the impact of co-infection on lung immune responses and allergy
  Prof R May, Dr C Pashley, Dr D Cunningham
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alveolar macrophages are white blood cells that provide an essential first line of defence in the lung. They hunt, engulf and destroy invading pathogens.
  Using live-cell imaging of the immune response to investigate host-pathogen interactions during infection.
  Prof R May
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

My group is interested in the molecular and cellular mechanisms that occur during host-pathogen interactions.
